Summery Stamped Floral Nail Art

I was in the mood for some bright flowers now that the temperature is starting to rise, and I’ve also been wanting to try out the stamping coloring technique (my first time!) that I’ve been seeing a lot of on Instagram lately.  So let’s go!

Supplies:

BMC Nail Lacquer- Liquid Gold
Formula X for Sephora- White Matter
Formula X- Dramatic
Formula X for Sephora- Indelible
Nicole by OPI- Make A Change
Qgirl- plate 008

L to R: Banana split, Liquid Gold, White Matter, Dramatic, Indelible, and Make A Change

I started out by painting all my nails with Banana split.

Pure yellow goodness.

Pure yellow goodness.

Next, I had to do one nail at a time, transferring the image from the plate to the stamper, then coloring in the flowers with a dotting tool and whatever color I wanted to use.  What I like about this plate is how there is an assortment of different sized flowers that start from a large print to a small one, so I used the bigger flowers on my thumbs and matched the size of the flowers to the size of the nail to which I was applying the stamp.

Repeat the above process ten times, and you’ve got yourself a groovy floral manicure that won’t wilt in the sun!
